2015 Petite Stag Book Challenge

Happy New Year!

I’ve seen a lot of book challenges recently on Pinterest.  I’ve been thinking a lot about what I read this year and what I want to read in 2015.  I found that in the past 19 months I’ve not had as much time for reading adult books as I would have liked – babies sometime change your nightly reading routine.  However, I am hopeful that 2015 will prove to be a better year for my reading goals.  I hope to read more than 10 books all year, but here is the Petite Stag Challenge.
